New York based multi-instrumentalist Andrew Cosentino first got in touch with blocSonic back in February. However, it took me a couple weeks to finally give it a listen. When I did, his EP, Country Western Star (CWS), immediately struck a chord and I emailed him back to find out how he’d like to approach the release. Since he had previously released it, we decided to give it the XE treatment, adding a bonus track to the original EP and his 2013 beat tape, Beats For Shadowball (BFS), rounding...

When you think of Maine, you think of forests… you think of lakes… you think of beaches… you think of the Atlantic… you think of lobstah… you think of “vacationland”. You probably don’t think of its music scene. Our musical exports to the rest of the country and the world are few and far between. Perhaps because of that… or in spite of it… the scene is quite diverse… country, folk, hip-hop, jazz, punk, rock, metal… you name it… someone’s creating it. This new release...

Love of music is what the netBloc series is about. It’s not about hatred of the mainstream music industry; even though it may seem so sometimes (no matter how much I am against everything that the music industry represents these days).

The industry has completely lost sight of the art. As... Topics: blocsonic, netbloc, creative commons, free, music, downloads, flac, mp3, ogg, fabrizio paterlini,...
